    NADA? National Automobile Dealers Association? The group that publishes the book that lists the value of a used car?

    I think you're wrong. I think there's going to be some serious fallout over what happened to El Rushbo - probably a few retractions and apologies issued, then perhaps a civil suit or two for the more egregious and recalcitrant ones.

    Rush can easily prove the economic harm caused by the comments made about him, the obstacle is that since he's a "public figure" he has to prove "actual malice". Actual malice is defined as "...the person making the statement knew the statement to be false, or issued the statement with reckless disregard as to its truth."

    I'm of the opinion that not checking actual facts, but instead using WikiQuote, before you go on the air with them is "reckless disregard". If Maharushie can find twelve people that think the same way as I do...

    They'll never say that Soros is racist, no matter what he has said.

    If you and I are going into a business partnership, and I drop you from the partnership because of comments made about your behavior - comments that are later proven to be false - then my lawsuit is against the people that made the comments. In theory, if my partner(s) should have known that the comments were so outlandish as to be false, then I can bring suit against them - especially if I can prove that they had an ulterior motive for forcing me out of the partnership - but nevertheless, my cause of action is against the person(s) who made the original comments.

    Off of the top of my head -- there have been comments made by Rev. Jackson, Rev. Sharpton, and a variety of "talking heads" on all the alphabet network and cable channels - Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, just to name a few.

    As I stated earlier - Rush can easily prove the economic loss as a result of the comments allegedly attributed to him. Now the question is "How far is Rush willing to persue this?"

    Yeah, I like how this is taken as automatically true despite no proof....


    ....yet Obama's relationships with Ayers, Wright, etc, are just happenstance and say nothing about his core values.

    I don't think Rush is going to sue. I think he's going to get as much mileage out of this as he can and in the end, I believe he'll have the last laugh.
